Learning to see and record the individuality of your model is of major importance when you are painting portraits. We will cover facial anatomy and learn to discover the subtleties that are unique to a person's individuality and personality. We will also cover light and shadow, hair, and clothing. You can apply the skills you learn in this class to all your portraiture - in fact your new knowledge and ability will show in all your painting!
